Carnegie Mellon University's comparative advantage in the social sciences rests in its ability to investigate issues, be they functional or specific to a country or region, through interdisciplinary research that combines fields such as social science and engineering in the same study.  Contributing to this tradition, CIRP fosters research, teaching, and policy analysis in diverse regions of the world through its flagship program, Grand Strategy, as well as its Regions Initiative.
